Atlas Lennox
October 31st

This is supposed to help, thats what my therapist says, I don't talk much during our sessions and she gets annoyed I can tell. Maybe that's why she gave me this exercise as she calls it, it's silly really since there's nothing active about writing in a book. She's says it's to help me express my feelings, whatever that means. She asked me if I was sad when Mom and Dad got taken away, I didn't say anything. What if I said something wrong and she got mad? What if I upset her when I said words? I don't want to do that so I didn't say anything. I never say anything, I don't want to make people mad but my bigger brother gets mad when I don't speak. He says I'm being dumb. Maybe I am. I don't understand what anyone wants from me and it hurts my head, I don't understand why Aristaios left, maybe it's my fault everyone leaves? Mom and Dad left, they say it was because they were a bad Mom and Dad but maybe we were bad kids? It doesn't even come to people's minds that maybe we were all bad kids, maybe not Eurydice, she's too quiet and small. Aristaios maybe, he used to make Mom and Dad so mad, so did I. I was mouthy, that's what dad said I was, he was probably right. I talked back which is wrong, I should've been better, yes maybe we were just bad children.

About the Character
Name: Open name and Surname
Age: 21-25
Gender: Female
School: can be a student. Employed at Mom and Pops dinner.
Grade: Whichever
Appearance: no preferences
Suggested Play-By:
Danielle Panabaker
Candice Patton
Personality: This lady would have to be super patient but also caring and kind. She needs to be the type that wants to help a person and such. Can be somewhat wild and will drag Atlas out.
History: this is pretty open, but I'd like her to not have to dark a past but maybe something that she can relate to Atlas somehow? It's pretty open.
Additional Information:
This girl is going to be Atlas's first crush and possibly more but that can be discussed. Atlas doesn't know how to handle having a crush so this will be an interesting dynamic to play with and I think they'd be fun.

About the Claimer
How often do you want the person to post? once a week at least but I get that rl happens.

About the Character
Name: Open name and Surname
Age: 35-40
Gender: Male
Occupation: psychologist or psychiatrist
Appearance: no preferences
Suggested Play-By:
Tom Cavannah
Jesse L Martin
Personality: I'm thinking he's pretty firm and determined but does truly care about people so much so that he puts his own neck on the line to help. Needs to be somewhat authoritive and fatherly. Eccentric.
History: #abuse
this is pretty open but I'm thinking maybe he had sibling that suffered some abuse of sorts and didn't get the help they needed or cooperate so it didn't end well which would he his motivation behind trying to get Atlas to do so. Maybe he has a kid but that is pretty open.
Additional Information:
So this guy is going to be Atlas's new therapist as he hasn't been talking to the current one. Atlas is going to eventually see him as a father figure and mentor. I see them becoming quite close friends practically Family but this can be discussed.

Atlas Adonis Lennox


23 ♦ Straight ♦ Dishwasher ♦ Selective Mute

WARNING// Abuse!

About
Atlas is one of the Lennox children who were locked in their mansion their whole lives. Subject to abuse by their parents until July 2016 when they were discovered after his older sibling escaped and made the authorities aware of the situation. Atlas had long since stopped talking to anyone but his younger sister and occasionally his other siblings. He's become so reliant on others and definitely doesn't think he can do anything for himself. He avoids reasonability and tends to ignore things he's told by his therapist. He's not got the courage to overcome his demons.

FRIENDS

Atlas is a selective mute as well as being reclusive, he avoids other people and spends lots of time hidden away in his bedroom in the mansion. He isn't at all social but with some patience and gentle persuasion he might be able to make a silent friend and maybe will open up. His therapist is encouraging it but Atlas isn't listening.

ENEMIES

Atlas doesn't speak so creating enemies might be hard, he has strong opinions on many things but won't say it he'll just sort of huff and stomp off. He's somewhat like a child in a 23 year olds body and so tends to work on people's nerves.

LOVERS

Again difficult with him being reclusive and not speaking but who knows. Patience and gentle persuasion could work, he's curious enough to possibly lead on too.

He needs everything, I want your ideas so hit me up.



Jethro Alistair Reigns


22 ♦ Straight ♦ Bartender ♦ Student at Monroe College



About
Jethro is studying criminology at Monroe university. He's a friendly guy that's incredibly talkative and always likes to hang out with friends. He's sarcastic and snarky on the best of days and despite being friendly he does come across as cold to people he's unsure about. Jethro is a stubborn human that has a gritty determination to get things done. Just watch his temper, he fights with his fists.

FRIENDS

Jethro is a nice enough person, he's friendly and talkative but as soon as he feels people getting to close he pushes them away. He doesn't form deep realtionships and he definitely doesn't talk about more than superficial things but he likes a good night out with friends and is up for most things

ENEMIES

Jethro doesn't go out to make enemies but he's likely to have them. He's sarcastic and snarky to most people and he's somewhat aggressive. He is a wind up merchant though and will do things to rile someone up.

LOVERS

Jethro doesn't know committment and it's only when he's with a woman that he can handle physical contact. He's not very good at sticking with one woman. He loves the ladies though and he's a real flirt. He's does flings and one nighters but not much more. Maybe someone can get him to commit though.

It was exciting to finally venture outside into the world that existed outside their little bubble, or at least it had been but for Atlas that excitement quickly faded as the realisation that the people he relied on namely his parents were gone. Of course he'd seen them get taken away, he was there but it took sometime for reality to hit him and hit him it did, the first month after they'd been discovered had been met by a complete meltdown on the part of Atlas. He couldn't care for himself, he needed his parents or that's what he believed and had always been led to believe.

They had help though all the siblings and this help was meant to encourage them and support them in their integration back into the real world. However Atlas's progress was slow, mostly due to his own doing. He wasn't working with his therapist and found himself only going to appointments, his job and then back to the mansion where he'd hideout. Atlas had done the same thing that day and had just returned home to the Lennox mansion, he shut the door behind him and headed straight for his bedroom. His bedroom was painted in cool grey colors and he found it to be a place he felt both comfort and fear. He carefully stored his shoes and clothes once he'd changed out of his uniform before grabbing the book he'd been reading and sitting down on his bed. His back straight, legs crossed.

BACKGROUND


Place of birth/hometown: Monroeville
General history:
Locked inside his home for most of his life Atlas found himself desiring to go outside, explore the world beyond their tiny mansion. He often heard the children playing and he wondered where the noise was coming from. Atlas was somewhat wild and mischievous, he was noisy, talkative and full of energy but as he grew that changed and he became more reserved never speaking at all. His talking often for him into trouble, because he often mouthed off and said things that angered his parents including using less than savoury language, eventually he stopped talking all together.

His older brother eventually escaped and led the authorities to them. Atlas was happy that their parents had to leave and he knew they were wrong but he needed them. He is terrified of not having someone to take care of him. Then his older brother moved out of the mansion and Atlas had a major meltdown about it. He's a little more settled now and follows his remaining siblings around.

How their past affects them:
Atlas has become afraid to speak out of turn so he just doesn't speak to anyone unless it's his sister. He's also heavily dependant on other people to make decisions for him and approve of Everything he does.
Character’s feelings about their past: He's trying to pretend it never existed, he's trying to understand why it happened and he's just trying to move forward while shying away from the world.
